More About the Author
Gini Gentry's spiritual teachings are anchored in mastery of ancient Toltec wisdom yet, embrace the unanimity of truth found throughout the great mystery traditions. As a Nagual Woman, she acts as sacred guardian to the Toltec way of life. Gentry met Toltec master don Miguel Ruiz in 1988. Ignited by that first meeting with Ruiz, Gentry catapulted onto the fast track to mastery. Over time,Gentry's unique voice inspired thousands of spiritual seekers to discover modern day relevance to the idea of awakening. Subsequently, she acted as midwife to the birth of the New York Times best-selling book, The Four Agreements, which now serves as a transformation tool for the masses through the mystical/esoteric teachings of the Toltec way.
~ Dreaming Down Heaven ~ Reviewed by Miriam Knight
"I must admit that I was a bit skeptical at first about using a fantasy novel to convey Toltec teachings, but boy was I wrong. A dreamscape is the perfect vehicle for getting you out of your head and into the real spirit of the teachings, and Gini Gentry does it with such gusto that you are swept along into the dream along with all your own stuff, that keeps popping up as you read along. The story is about Gigi, a gal who has hit the bottom of her emotional and financial reserves after a painful divorce from a rock star. She answers an ad for a manager of a small rural theater, and when she arrives she finds herself in the company of a whole class of "angels in training" who are put through a spiritual boot camp by the formidable Maya, mistress of illusion, ably assisted by God(frey).
As you romp through the human drama to acquire the twelve keystones of life wisdom, it is impossible not to reflect on them in the context of your own history and habits of thought. By embedding them in story, their meaning is brought home to you with more personal impact than just reading them in a spiritual text. The truth of ideas like, "you are the playwright of your own life," or "your perceptions create your reality" seeps into your subconscious without effort. I believe this book can be a delightfully transformativeexperience for its readers. Warmly recommended."

Honestly, guys won't even bother to crack this one open. It's definitely meant as mystical soap-opera ('Magical Theatre') and this one is for the girls. (And there are even some cheesy love scenes just to keep the ladies interested.) If you have not really started your own journey of awakening and you are female this one might be ok. But if you are looking for any teachings here that you can get without having to read like a dozen pages getting past the prose, then you might want to skip. Instead, you should start with her teacher Don Miguel Ruiz as in The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom (A Toltec Wisdom Book)
Part of the problem with most things being touted as 'Toltec' these days is that they are VERY disconnected from any real indigenous tradition. You have to take their word for it that it is anything remotely associated to the Toltecs and Tulan from history.Read more ›
